A Derbyshire day out

October 16, 2014 | Comments: 0 | Categories:

I used to go to Chatsworth lots as a child, for picnics, walks, to play by the river and in the famous weir, to run round the gardens and grottos and to trail around the stuffy house as I thought it then, full of seats you couldn't sit on and things you mustn't touch. I honestly don't remember any paintings or other artworks I saw then, though I must have encountered many marvellous ones.

However I went there on purpose last week, whilst down south for the Tree Stories project, to see there current show of sculpture in the grandest of settings.  Here's a small selection of my favourites, but you can find an interactive map here if you are looking for details.
